Being a part of the scooter community is not only fun but also essential for your growth as a scooter rider. Attend local scooter events, meet other riders, and learn from more experienced riders. Engaging with the community will not only provide valuable insights and tips but also inspire you to improve your skills.

Getting involved in the community also involves using social media to see what’s happening on the scooter scene globally. The globalization of the industry will help you see what others are doing but it can also help amplify your personal voice and reach.

Scooter brands love riders who have a platform to help them get their products in front of prospective customers. So if you have the ability to create content on platforms like Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube this could also make you more attractive to scooter companies.

Step 6: Take Care of Your Body

Pro scooter riding at the highest level requires physical strength and endurance. Take care of your body by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This means staying hydrated, eating a well balanced diet (not Taco Bell everyday), and getting enough rest.

Step 7: Keep Pushing Forward

Nobody goes pro overnight, becoming a pro scooter rider takes time and dedication. Consistency and perseverance are key. Celebrate your achievements no matter how small and use setbacks as motivation to keep progressing. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a pro rider’s bag of tricks.

Now that you have a roadmap to becoming a pro scooter rider, it’s time to get out there and start practicing. Remember, the journey is just as important as the destination. Embrace the process, have fun, meet new people and enjoy the ride. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll be the next Ryan Williams, or Tanner Fox.
